drainova® ArgentiC catheter

drainova® ArgentiC catheter

Catheter with microsilver

drainova ArgentiC® catheter is an indwelling catheter for symptom relief in patients with recurrent malignant and benign pleural effusion or ascites. The catheter is made of biocompatible silicone with embedded microsilver. Silver ions have an antimicrobial effect on the catheter surface and reduce the risk of infection without having a systemic effect.

How silver ions act on microorganisms

  • Damages the cell membrane
  • Blocks DNA replication
  • Breaks the respiratory chain
